Treasuring Our Art and Culture
As the world is facing a sudden blow of globalization, cultural homogenisation and cultural hegemony are two of the strongest forces which are changing the distinctive nature of cultures across the globe. Thus, in my opinion, art and culture being the rich heritage of the Indian history is significant to be treasured and preserved. In regard to the same, I not only raised the issue in the parliament but also inquired if the government proposes to set up Indian Institute of Arts and Culture on the lines of IIT and IIM. The ministry responded with information about the various specialized institutes and academies working in collaboration with Ministry of Culture on different aspects of art and culture. Moreover, there is no such proposal for Indian Institute of Art and Culture.
